The Chicago White Sox granted outfielder Adam Eaton his unconditional release Monday.

Eaton, 32, was designated for assignment last Wednesday and the team couldn’t find a trade partner.

The 10-year MLB veteran signed a one-year, $8 million deal with Chicago last December.

Eaton batted .201 with five homers and 28 RBIs in 58 games this season.

He is a lifetime .278/.356/.412 hitter with 65 homers, 317 RBIs and 86 stolen bases in 889 games with the Arizona Diamondbacks (2012-13), White Sox (2014-16, 2021) and Washington Nationals (2017-20).

Eaton led the American League in triples in 2014 (10) and 2016 (nine) and won a World Series with the Nationals in 2019.
